  1. Manny Pacquiao at 40 can still fight in a very high level fight but it seems that he lost some steps compared when he was at his prime. He has been on so many battles and there might be side effects to his body. Maybe he can still have two to three fights but he needs to be more careful and smarter. We all know that at 40, boxer is already on the decline stage. He has nothing to prove because he was already a legend and he was once the face of the boxing. After a couple of fights maybe retirement is the best course of action.
